Trap is impressive. I| has 
neither fast n' furious action, 
nor any great extent of strategy, 
but it holds a player's interest 
for » considerable amount of 
time. 

An attractive litre page 
appears while this game is 
loading, showing a 3D 
representation of your ship, 
frying down a narrow canyon. 
Sounds famMiar, doesn't it^ 
I WeN AHigeta make no attempt 
to confuse prospectiive 
purchasers with a tengthy 
Storyline It's a game involving 
a lot of zapping, and is no ress 
accomphshed for that 

The idea is simple — you 



TRAP 

must try to shoot, dodge and fly 
your way as far into enemy 
territory as possibfe. bomtsing 
fuel canmsters and picking up 
cargo. 

1ne screen is presented in 
much the same way as, um, 
(Millions of other games — Ed\ 
er, right, k's a simple plan vSew. 
scrolling from top to bottom, 
revealing new area-^^ of 
landscape as you progress. 
Your mission rs made more 
diffkult by the numerous 
defences which bar your w^y. 
Some take the form of gun 
installations, dotted around the 
wells of the canyon, while 
others are fiendpsh pohce 
squadrons, who fly straight at 
you, guns blazing > 

Control of your ship ]s far 
from complicated — left and 
right fire, Zappo (equivalent to 
a Defender smart-bomb) drop 
cargo, and increase^decrease 



speed. Carqo is coMocted J^y 
flying over it. There a rg three 
requisites which need to be 
satisfied before you can move 
onto the next phase. These are 
as fo Hows: Aliens left 10 Ml 
boat^ left to bomb, and Police 
Craft remaining. 

Something which will pleese 
al^ hackers is thai a demo mode 
has been included. Try typing 
''demo" into the high -^Ore 
table and see what happens! 

And that's ^ust about u. What 
we have, then, is a fast and 
furious ?appmg game, in the 
classic style Nol too 
complicated, easy to get the 
hang of — and, most 
importantly, fun to play.

The screen is presented in a 
very orderly fashion, the top 
bait being an 'action window", 
showing — surprisingly — the 
action En the lower half a series 
of bo^es show all sorts of 
inLeresEing, and utterly vital, 
mformairon. Time elaft^ed^ tiles 
stored, energy left, object 
storage boxes and the menu. 

The menu is quite 
competeniiy assembled. By 
movmg the loystick back and 
forth, you can select ophons 
with which you can manipulate 
Objects 

And that's really all there is to 
it The graphics are nice, but too 
smali to contain any detail 

There are an awful lot of 
places to go, from the current 
eta — obviously — through the 
ict age, wilderness, golden age. 
Gothic period and many more. 

To find an object, you need to 
LOOK in a likely place. 
Unfortunately, there are an 
awful lot of Likely places, and it 
takes a considerable amount of 
lime to check them. 

And that, dear reader s, is it. 
Nothing marvelous, but 
reasonably reasonable, Oh, yes. 
the music is very nice too,

BRUCE 

• Machine: BBC

It's f maily a v^il^ble on the BBC. 
Brace Le0 is a livelv 
up-tfidJt-'Bm mafikl arts 
adveniure which hos ouf Bruce 
kicking and choppmg his wav 
through a perilous forlress in 
search of infinke wi^alth and the 
secrei of i mm on a lily. 

H&'% not 1«h to dd £0 in peace 
needless fci say The fortress is 
full of dange^rs. -including tlie 
d ma fled Green Viimo and the 
' ■ ■ ■■■ h, -sErtk-wieldingi J^Jmja 



As he progresses Ihf ough the 
fTiany l€vel$ aricisocrni 
chambers of the fertress, the 
going geis real I y rough — theia 
are electrical charges, 
exploding bushes, and flnaUy 
the awesome powers of th^ 
Wizard himself. 

Apart from moving left, righi. 
up and down, iumping and 
ducking, he has only two moves 
wfTh wfiich \u defend h^mseif . ci 
chop and a kick. A paifry 
ijf mour^ for # master Nker Bruce, 
you would think, bul tt's enough 
10 make the Gr^^&n Yamo &top 
and think,. 

The graphics are colourful, if 
rather crude, but don l let thai 
put yoy off. evgn if the pr»ce 
do^^ Bruce Lee neatly 
combines arcade action with

If looks good and it sounds 

a ood— that's Mirrorsoft'sStfi 
^*frior on the Amslrad 
Bascially, ifs a sort of W3y of 



the fxp/oding Fist with sticks. 
And ^OOd fun it is. 

Sai Kararte is a marital an in 
which the fighters use a Sai 
Weapon — a big pole, in other 
words. Add to this a variety of 
karate kicks and you ve got the 
ingredients of a violent pun^cH 
yp. 




apm 







The idea, as with most of the 
seemingly mMiiOns of martial 
arts games on the market. \% to 
fight your way through eight 
levels, from white to biack beii 
arfcd thef^ through the eight dara 
levels until yoti reach Safc 
Master. At vatious stages iin ^he 
gameihere are extra haitards to 
face ~ such 9% Ninja stars 
hurtlmgby. 

Pomts a re scored for 
Successful ly landed blows A 
total of 600 points are r^eeded 
for a knockdown. Energy levels 
are shown on the dragon's head 
on the scoreborad. Thre^ 
knockdowns are requked to 
progress to the next IcveJ. 

The Sa« Warriors are big, 
bright and vory colourfuL The 
sound is quite funny. The 
supposed y^hoosh of the Sai 
weapon Through ihe air sounds 
a liltle like a jei engine starting 
up

Of she so wishes at the start of 
the game. 

This is a keyboard only game 
and we experienced some 
di^fficulty loading with a joystick 
interface plugged in. The game 



doesn't really (ose anything 
because of the lack of a joystick

REBEL PLANET 



Machine: BBC 
• Supplier: US Gold 
'PPric«;£7,95 

Vou are Tarann, la$t of the E^rth 
heroes, engaged in one lastn 
desperate attempt to break iha 
SI r angle hoi d of the ioathsome 
Arcadian empire on ihe galaxy. 

Your quesE, to destroy the 
Arcadian queen computer. Your 
weaponr a forbidden laser 
sword. Your opponents, many. 
Your chanceSn pretty remote — 
as far as lean see. 

Retei PiSfief is a tes<t 
adventure which may not have 
been Quilled, but it certainly has 
that feel. With all the clumsiness 
of response you get from 
adventures written according to 
a preset formula 'io\^ are 
confronted with "Sorry, Vm 
confused" fru strati ngty often 
when the program doesn't 
rocognife your inpul, but at 
leasl there's a fair variety of 



"Vou can't do that "-type 
massages. 

There are one or two 
home-made touches which 
really shouldn'l appear in a 
commercial product: sentences 
OCcasionaMy get dupNcated, or 
words wrap round badly, with 
single ch a r s cte rs be i ng take n 
ovet on to the ne^ft Ime. On at 
least one occasion the program 
told me an objecl was in view, 
then proceeded to deny it when 
I tried to pick it up. 

That's what I don t like about 
Rebei Pisnet What I do like 
^bout Rebei Planet is the 
ingenuity of Ihe puzzles and the 
liveliness of the scenario. You 
start on the flight deck of the 
merchant ship Caydia, 
disguised as a traveling 
merchant The ship seems to be 
deserted except for domestic 
droids which scurry around 
cleaning the place. Vou must 
e^piore^ pick up what's going, 
top up your protein and energy 



levels, then disembark on to 
planet Tropos to make your ftrst 
contact with ihe underground 
resistance. 

Simple enough, you might 
think — only it wa$n t I never 
did get to grips with the 
lonuous workings of the 
author's mind. I died of 
s; a rv a tion si)< times before I 
gave up trying to find the card 
that operated the sustenance 
machine, and turned to 
chewing the carpet instead . , . 

Thai'^ what it's all about, of 
course A good adventure 
should grip. ^ndHebei Pisner is 
certainly gripping. I just wish 
something could be done about 
the constraints o1 the 
framework wdhin which so 
many advefitures these days 
seem to be written.

Vour progress through the

the main problem with the 
program is that bounce is so 
bloody hard to control ! Once

careering inio something 
deadly. 

That's jusi about il. Nothing

Cor. it'sCore' Yes, well. Here 
comesCortf , a new type of 
arcade adventure. Thi$ one 
incorporates icons I new? J and 
has some rather nicfe graphics. 

The graphics are sort of 
Nodes of VesQcl type although 
■' -re isn't that much colour Tn 

m a nd they a re fa i r ly fast . 
Anyway back to the plot. You, 
as Andrew Angello. a weird 
type of astronaut, have received 
a message from your HO to go 
and find out wtioof what is 
wiping out your asteroid 
coionies 

On arrival, you fmd that ail 
personnel are dead, some 720 
of therrk' Your only hope isio 
collect and r^^s$embte the 
biological memory ce^lsthat 
were left on the iister^od to 
create the colony's memory, 
and find out why ihey di^. 

This all sounds simple, 
doesn*t it? Well it's not. First of 
all you discover that the icons 
are very hard to use^ if you are 
playing with ^ ioysfick. Vou 
have 10 do all sorts of strange 
moves just to drop something 
that you have picked up. 

When you get hit by an alien, 
you gel the message *"0h. That 
smans'. Oh, thai smarts? What 




does that mean' Then, if you 
are unfortunate enough to get 
hit again, the game tries to 
accuse you of^ening killed 
deliberately 1 1 To top it all off , 
when you die it says " Mission 
aborted, due lo death "" Pretty 
obvious really ■ 

AH the screens stem to te the 
same with doors and aliens and 
things on the floor, just 
occasionally it may be a 
differem colour. Still, once you 
have mastered the scons, got 
used to dodging aM the aliens, 
and have played the game so 
many times the slupid 
massages don't bother you. 



then you can get inio the game 
— providing yOu're not too 
worn out after all that lot. 

Without doubt. Core is a pood 
Idea, but the game doesn't hold 
your interest that much due to 
the method of COntrgL 

It says on the box thai ihis 
game will require "sp<ied, skill 
and brain$/' Yes It does neeij 
the!^, bul it also requireit 
A- level maths to figure out the 
icons I

Do you reniennber an old

n^um and dad playing a strange 
sort of 'dig a hole-and-smash- 
a-monster-over-the-head' type 
of game? You do' WeM then 
you'll recognise this oame. 

\r\ case you don't, this game 
features little red monsters 
which took like tomatoes 
chasing your poor man all 
about tne screen on various 
leve^ls. To avoid these nasty 
types, you must run up and 
down ladders and dig holes tor

you musi bash their tiny brains 
Out with your shovEl untrl they

Fire up your jetpac, and head

rather famifiai.

— fust to make it interesting . . 

On the first screen. I decided 



to fife up my ju[[]jl: and head on 
up, but I couldn't'! ! Even 
though 1 had a mighty jetpac 
strapped onto my back, i 
couldn't fly straight up. How 
stupEd con you g^i^ 

I quickly discoverd that you 
could only move teh and right 
when in ttn?air, and |hal you 
still had to C'ltmb up stupid ^ittte 
Lidders to get to the neid 
platform. And ihen as if that 

wasn't bad enough, 1 found I 
had a 'Irmited supply of fuel for

After coJIeclmg the three 
silver keys, which was quite 
easy, you progret^s onto the

which looks much the same,

end I cienred so many shfifiis I

Runner is too simple by half

and tried tl No luck. A fueling 
of dfeod swept over me, 
preventing my escape. After 
sipping ihe lea and watching 
the world go by p little longer, 
my feari seemed lo jubside^ 
ond I wos allowed out, into the 
^woHd. 

There followed o rother

badly poved rood, which fead 
from eost to west. At my feet 
lay Q few shillings and o penny. 
Haying collected these, I shook 
my nauseous head, ond started 
to explore.

of the Admirql Bombow Inn 
loomed in the d^stonce- Shorrty, 
I amvcd, and mode o rather 
ungainly entrance The inn wos 
long obondoned. ond o thick 
loyer of dust covered most of 
the room. There oppeored little 
here that hod not olreody been 
looted Or wrecked by the 
countless other travellers who 
hod mode their wa^ ihrough 
the deserted wotering-hole in 
seorch of systenorice. Moving 
through the creaking wooden 
timbers, f headed up c High* of 
spirol steps. 

Immedidfely, a vacuum- like 
sensation envetoped my body, 




to sofety, I lay on the stepjs for 
sevefol minutes, reolistng that

Using hondy trick I picked 
up earlier in the day, I checked 
who wos nearby. From who* I 
couJd moke out. Zio the 
Necromoncer wos fespans^bte. 
''Some doy^ n^y friend . - ," I 
thought. Then, suddenly, I 
regoined both the use of my 
vocol chords, and my limbs. 
Whether I hod been patched 
up by the tepenrant Zia, or the 
spell hod worn off i% still o 
mystery. 

I left the inn, and was 
relieved to see the doylight 
again. Some distance to the 
south was o smoij cottoge, set 
On q flot concrete potch. 
Situoted near the groveyord, 
the cottage belonged to the 
gravedigger. I suspect he had 
long since |Oined the ranks of 
his previous customers in their 
eerie resting place. 

The graveyard bore d 
number of unmarked lomb*. 
One, however, was of

SPECTRUM 48 K 




THE STORY SO FAR 

The WIzord of Tolly ron tofd th© story of how o 
magic moce kept the kingdom of Tolly ron 
from in vosioo. Tolly ron was bordered by 
sea on the west coo £t^ on the noHh by the londs 
of the dreoded Block Knight, on the east by the 
country of Krull the Merciless and to the south 
lav the empire of Grekh the EviL These three 
rulers together wished to destroy the lond of 
Ta 1 1 y ron to re vet . 

The Block Knight stole the mace ond hid Jt on 
the Island of the Lost and a young acolyte from 
the Grand Meeting of Wizards wos selected to 
recover \t. Together with his two f riends^. Marc, 
from the Kiings yeoman and Karl, a southern 
farmer, he recovered the mace and destroyed 
the Block Knight. Marc hos since become 
Commander in Chief of Tollyron's armies and 
our interpid hero hos become Court Wixard to 
ftie king of Toltyron^ 

NOW READ ON! 



Mi 



ore wine for my guesfs^\ colled the 
i young wizard. Roe|et, the old leader 
lof the Grand Meeting of Wizards 
watched him, warily. The third member of the 
dinner party^ Marc sot back in his choir, knowing 
what wos afoot, but saying nothing. 

^^Now, just what are you up to^ you young 
ruscol?"' asked the old wiiord. 

^'Surely an ocolyte con treat his master to a 
good meol?" enquired his host, genially; 

'The days when you were a junior Meeting 
member ond I wos your master are now lono 
pa$t/^ said Roget evenly* ''You ore no ocolyfe 
nowj but the Court Wiiard of TolFvron ond quite 
outside any jurisdiction of mine. Now what 
exoctly ar€! you after?'* 

^Too wise py half, OS usuol/' grinned the Court 
Wizard, "Quite right, I need your help. Tell rtie^ 
wiiat do you make of this?" 

Clearing a spoce in the centre of the table, he 
spread out a scroll of parchment. It looked 
extremely old but the ossembled company could 
clearly reod the followlno stanzos. 
from wizard's lair in darkest Watd 
Was spawned a hare ofcrystatf €atd. 
When Mace is tost^ and Mace is foi/nd 
feel belt's reposf^^, deep undergraund. 
for Hare be fauna with Hf Intent 
and Mace be drowned taareaf extent. 
''Where did you aetthi5?^osked Roget. 
"From the king. This is port of the prophecies of 
Karleem/'' 

The old man gasped. Korleem was o legendary 
seer who lived many years previously^ hod 
mqde many predictions ond had never been 
wrong. 

^'Now I think I understand. The kino is 
coftcerned obout the reference to theloss and 
recovery of the mace?'% sold Roget. 

"Quite* So ony help would be appreciated/^ 

"Let us see then/' Roget exo mined the 
parchment. At length he said : "Well the Wold ts 



the old name for the Southlands, the area just 
below where your friend Korl has his farm. A 
hare is the olci southern word for o bell, so 
presumably the prophecy must refer to some 
magic bell with the power to negate the effect of 
the moce. I should think the Keeper of the 
Moon tower on the southern plains could tell you 
oil about it/' 

"Then I must travel south/' The Court Wizord 
turned to Marc, "Would you care to join me?" 
Th e so Id ier s m il ed . 

*'Why not? The army could manage very well 
without me for a day or two. And it gives us a 
chonce to look up on old friend!" 



Chapter Two 



Jf M M hope this will take no longer thon o week 
I or two/' complained Korl. "I have o 
m harvest to worry obout/' 

"Stop winging. You know you hate the quiet 
life!'' More chided. 

The three of them approached a bluff 
overlooking the southern plains of Tollyron os 
dusk feel. Suddenly they were surrounded by o 
group of armed men who moved forward to 
attack them. The Court Wizord hod a sleep spell 
ready. The two fighters drew their swords. 
''Wait Marc/' called the magician. "They don't 
look like Grekh^'s people/" 

The Court Wizard gravely gave his name. 

''And who om I addressing? Why do you 
prepare to attack us?" he asked indignantly. 

''Our humble apologies, my lord. We defend 
the Moontower and these are troubled times^ for 
Grekh's armies are abroad/' Mark and Korl 
exchanged glances. 

"Looks like there may be something to the 

eoem, after oil/' said Karl, 'Take us to your 
eepmr^ please/' 

Within naif on hour the Keeper of the 
Moontower. who was on ancient gnarled 
charocter with a long beard and flowing 9^^y 
hair, was reading the history of the Crystal Sell 
of the Wold from an old manuscript. 

The visitors soon determined that if the belt 
should be rung by on attacking army^ the mace 
would become powerless. 

'^ But there i^ worse newsi. Tm ofroid/' said the 
otd man gloomily, "The bell's last known 

B>sition was in tne old underground complex at

Multi-Role. All Weather, All Terrain combat aircraft. From !tie 
remainin^g three allied boses you must otiack and deslToy the 
enemy on lond, in the air and at sea. It's a tough task. 

There are nine skill levels — from training mode to one which 
l$so hard rt s ditfjcuit to believe anybody could cope with it-- 
one or two piay er game, summer, winter or night flying. 

Weapons range tram missiles — air to air, air to sea ond air to 
ground — cannon and flares 

Enemy forces can be traced by referring to the aircrotti 
soielttte intelligence map. You can then head for them and try 
to engange them in combat. But watch out. They're inclined to 
hghtback. 

There's no doubt youH need quick wits,^ a cool head Qod fast 
reactions if you take on ACE.

The noKT task is to enter lejci 
measagc^s These covls^r JocaLon 
and object descnpuons, replies to 
eiamuung an objea . and 
m^sanea resultmg- from an action 
in the game. As you create each 
descriptbon. you have ■ whole 
screen to work on. 

M you ^ve each description to 
djisk. a status tme keeps I rack of 
how many sectors you have used, 
and uiformation aboui the conlenls 
of each of the Mes are displayed, 
so you can tell wheie you're t^p to. 

Next the Location.^ are linked 
With the Estits editor. As Ehe name 
suggests, here you inlorm the 
editor of the legal exits, and where 
they lead to 

The process now becomes 
harder, m the Hags ediior Flags 
aie used lo keep track of what is 
bippenmg wh4e you play the 
game. 

For instance, d you've fouml a 
key and imlocked a door, the Qag 
assigt^ed to the door would be 
changed, so you wont have to 
unlock IT every ume you ^o 
through 

Settmg the fla^g OOrreqtly. aiKl 
making sure chey are updated 
properly duruig the gune, 



requires a lo4 Of careful ihought. 

Mow the adventure must be 
given a vocabubnV ^y creating 
iwo Basic pmgiam iles. one tor 
verbs, the other for noima. All you 
hav« to do IS to type the words tn 
as Basic DATA statements Each 
line holds a -gtoup of words of 
siimiJar rneanmg. 

Now some code in SAL must be 
written SAL (Slave Adventure 
Language ) is what interprets the 
commands, iind acts accordingly. 
[1 moves the player from pla^ to 
place, checks to see what's i^een 
done, and issues messages as play 
piogtesses 

Because SAL is a language, it 
has its own commands, 
resembling a aoss between Baste 
and 6SD£ Assembly Language 
This IS by far lhe hardest part of 
the adventure creat^g sequence. 

AU thai remains is to arTange 
your files on to a fresh blank disk, 
and 11^ n^ Slave once more to 
cofftpjltt Item tmo maclun^ code 

Slave IS a good program- As f^ 
m creaiing an adventure is 
ooncemed, iS has lis? own 
commands. re^en^iiiLing a cross 
bAfW^en Basic and 6502 Assembly 
Language This is by far ihe 
harAsat part of the advennire 
<^Miitigtdqwnce 



All that remains is to arranq«^ 
your files on to a fresh blank .-. > 
and wse TheSbi?** once morfe \u 
complte them mto machme code 

How good 4S TTre SIsve? Ai far 
as creating an advennire is 
concerned^ it doe^ remarkably 
well Just aboui every posaibiLty 
and option likely is covered, 
inchiding adding sound a title 
icieen, and game save and 
restore 

Unfortunately, it does fall down 
in two areas Ftristly.. if you can^ 
program m Basic to begin with, (he 
Th^Sbw Ls nqt for you £AL is rin/\ 
an ideal way to learn. 

Thts bnngs me to my second

was not the final version: even so 
there we 14^ sotrie glaring 
omrmssions which owt mt a lo^ of

Even so, il you can live with that,

Jagger got to do with all of this? Not to mention 
Michael Heseltine and Neil Kin nock! It's over to YOU,

Well the Americans 

haven't be ate n us yet 
when it boils down to 
the fiitty-gritty of who's 
got the highest score. 

We've received a 
number of challengers 
to the high scores tohte 
printed in the July issue 
cind it [MSt goes to prove 
that we con run rings 
round The Yanks! 

To kick off, Afid^rew 
Moofe from the 
Re pub lie of Ireland puts 
me right on Iron Horse 
which refers to the train 
you're riding on as it 
chugs through the Wild 
West. In this battle 
against a gong of 
mosked thugs you're 
given a choice of 
weapons: f lome 
throwers, bombs, 
lossoes and bolas. 

And here are 
Andrew's lips: 

1) Duck when you're 
fighting to reduce the 
chance of being stobbed 
orshotinthebock. 

2) Save the speciat 
weapons for the 
Me xicons who duck 
down and fire bombs or 
flames at you. 

3) When you get the lost 



open cotf le truck — get 
in from of the barrels 
and duck. Stay low and 
keep firing. Now the 




con get you is either by 
running into your line of 
fire or by chucking 
bombs or flames^ In any 
cose you known whaf s 
coming^ 

4] Choose the punch 
option as if s more 
devastating. 
5} Dive into the alcoves 
in the carriages as the 
baddies hardly ever 
follow you in. And use 
the passageways 
between the corriages 
as they have to string 
out and you can knock 
them off easier. 
6) In the second ond 
subsequent stages keep 
a watchful eye on the 
bockground and dodge 
the cannon f ire. Ouck 
when you ^ee the bold 
guys OS they throw 
knives at you> 
And from lee Toy/or 

of Blackpool, LancSp 
comes o tip for infinite 
lives on Orogon's Lair. 
Ploy a two player gome 
and let player one lose 
a life. Then on player 
two's first mon complete 
the game. Lose ployer 
one's remaining men 

and the machine should 

IP '. iif.. 



on player one, This trick 
will no! work with 
American versions of 
the game.

ir^i possible juSt for Ihe Atari

Foisnd 

Jackson replies: Sorry, friend, 
WA just don't hmvw a catalogue 
of computer games. New 
games are coming onto the 
market every day so any 




catalogue would be continually 
out of date My advice is to 
keep all your C - VG$. ^t'% the 
best reference work you could 
have. 



I am writing to you for advice. 
Which software servke do you 
recommend? I have looked at 
so many but they all seem alike 

As you can see from my 
address, \ hve in Austrah^,. 
which fcs somewhat of a 
d ?s 3 d va n tag e w h en 1 1 co me s to 
your fantastic competitions. 
The newsagent from which I 
buy your magazine has just got 
the April edition in and today is 
May 23rd. So you can see my 
predicament — t buy your 
magazine after the date of whch 
th« competition has f inimhed! Is 
there ar^y way of getting around 
this awful situation? If not. what 
do you suggest^ 

I really errjoyed yowr review

M0nh0v¥ BeBty,

Jackson replies; We cai^ aiimiail 
you copies of C ^ VG and they 
should reach ¥<>y within 12 io 
14 days But it will cost you £45 
for a yeaf for a subscription. As 
for competitions. Matthew, last

Dftrren Me&rS,

Jackson replms The camera^ 
we use are not special )ust 
ordinary SLRs — Thpt's Single 
Lens Reflex. The art is in getting 
the right shutter speed and lens 
aperture. Sorry, but we don't 
have any posters Try w riling to 
software houses. 



• I feel the need to write to you 
once more concermrsg the June 
13@^^ssue. J collected my 
reserved copy from my lo^al 
newsagent and thought to 
myself This is e bumper issue, 
nice and thick." On closer 
examsnation at home I found 
that 32 pages of my supposed 



"bumper 3ssue" cowsted ot a 
NatWest Online maga/jne. 

While appreciatmg that all 
megarino$<^iirry inserts for 
other causes, i think that this 
was i b^t much. Especially as it 
enidiled a car^lul removal of 
said magazine m order to avoid 
damaging C - VG. 

I am sure thai a lot Of people 
would rather have a games 
supplement than a bank 
advert is«ment. I for one do not 
wis b to see a noth er 'Bank 
Job I " and would prefer a 
listings book instead. 

AM grumbles aside, keep up 
the good work in your magazine
